Description of problem:
After booting the bootnet.img disk image in both graphical and text mode, the
screen stays blue (with standard redhat header and command footer) after IP
configuration. Virtual consoles show that an ip address was receied and the
network card was detected. Same behaviour exists if you put in a static IP
configuration. Last message on message console says that the reverse lookup
was successful. Allowed system to sit for 7 hours with no results.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot bootnet.img disk
2. Select graphical or text install
3. Configure IP address (either by DHCP or static - doesn't matter)
Actual Results: The 'Configure ip address' dialog goes away, the virtual
console says that it got an ip address, gateway, etc. and the primary console
stays blue for hours.
Expected Results: Next stage of the installer.
What are the last few messages on VC3?
Well, I made a new bootdisk off of the same .img that I did the first three
tries to check this, and it worked fine this time. I'm starting to think now
that it was a bad write, although dd reported 2880 blocks written each time...
Unless you've had other reports of this, I'm going to now attribute it to bad disks?
